I didn't think about it this way, but this is such a good point. #McSchoenaerts?

I'm sure Rachel would have enjoyed the experience of working with them but I'm glad she passed
As for Passengers, I'm again really glad it didn't happen for her. I think the script has changed a lot during this process and the version Rachel has read must have been quite different than the one that has got to be made. But still... I'm glad she isn't the one whose movie is getting those kinds of reviews
Agreed on both points. I remember that earlier this year that THR predicted Kate getting a Best Supporting Nod for Collateral Beauty and I was waiting for the buzz, which never came.

Judging on the trailer I have seen it does seem like they changed the script of Passengers, which is a shame I think. But I guess that's the point what Rachel is often trying to make, a lot happens between pre-production, a script and the final experience. I can't help but think it would have been more a character movie if it happened with Rachel and Reeves, and I think right now it looks more action-ish (but I guess they are trying to sell it to Jennifer and Chris' Hunger Games/Guardians of the Galaxy audience)
